10 Jan Achieve A Healthy Smile This New Year!
rooked teeth are more than just unappealing in a smile. They may pose a range of health problems, including periodontal disease, misaligned jaws, and more. Fortunately, orthodontics is entirely dedicated to straightening your smile – and solving all these problems. Our team of orthodontic professionals at Taunton Orthodontics want to help you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile in 2021!
How Does Orthodontics Work?
Orthodontics is a special branch of dentistry that focuses on the proper alignment of the teeth and jaws. The orthodontist aligns teeth and sets the jaws straight. They do this by fitting the patient with orthodontic appliances. These appliances gently push, guide and align the teeth and jaws into place over time.
Beyond the Aesthetic Appeal
Most people go to the orthodontist to fix their smile. However, orthodontics offers a wide range of oral health benefits, including:
- Preventing Tooth Decay
Crooked and misaligned teeth are difficult to brush properly, since there are many hard-to-reach places for bacteria to thrive. Straightening the teeth makes brushing easier and may help prevent tooth decay.
- Straightening Crooked Bites
Crooked teeth can cause overbites, underbites, and crossbites. All of these conditions will make you more vulnerable to other oral problems, including TMJ. They can also make it difficult to eat.
